Great News! I fully expected the NCAA to wait till the week before the first game to grant it.

Doesn’t this put us one over on scholarship limit or did that already work itself out?

The NCAA changed the rule in April that it you redshirted a year and it wasn't from injury, you could get a 6th year due to losing a year from injury. Richardson redhirted his fresh!an year, and was injured last year, so they didn't have much choice but to approve him.

That is great news. I hope he can stay healthy and have a great season.

I think this will add strength to an already strong position group.

This is great news for our team but I also think it’s great news for him. A solid Sr. season and I believe he could play in the league.

Overall, it looks as though our defense is going to be light years better than last years, as long as the injury bug stays away.  I know we are thin in some key areas, but I'm already excited about our defense and they haven't played a down yet.

It kind of got lost in the shuffle earlier in the offseason, but Morris scored 4 big time recruits when he got here. Froholdt, Pulley, Ramirez, and Richardson III.

Benny, you think Richardson will be a "jack-of-all-trades" or primarily play one position?

I tend to think that he rests the safeties and plays the nickel against teams with stronger passing games.

I tend to think that he rests the safeties and plays the nickel against teams with stronger passing games.

He has the skill set to play at least serviceably any position in the secondary that we ask of him. Though, he is, IMO, best suited at a nickel/S hybrid type of role.

In an ideal world, I think he primarily focuses on that position. However, every coach worth a darn will cross train their players in order to allow the players to shuffle in the case of an injury maintaining the best players on the field.

If an injury does happen, KR3 being shuffled would depend on the development of the other guys. For example, we have many backup outside corners that are better equipped physically to handle the boundary and field corner spots than Richardson. If they catch on mentally, then they would likely be the next man up to an injury out there allowing Richardson to stay in the nickel. However, if they don't, then I'd guess that KR3 would be moved outside with one of the gifted youngsters moving to the slot for the time being where mistakes can often be easier to overcome due to being on less of an island.

Injuries are ALWAYS big for us. Your answer brings up another big question, who are the back-up corners/safeties and what should we expect from them?

Does Brown hold down a back-up spot at Safety?
Where does Curtis and McClellion fit into the depth chart? Will Tutt be a factor?

Great news all around. Not only does the program benefit from his talents and experience, but he also gets a chance to (hopefully) contribute this next year and perhaps even give himself a legitimate shot at the NFL if he so chooses.

Our secondary is going to be solid this year, maybe even outstanding at times.  If Chavis can generate some pressure up front, we will take a big jump up the standings on defense to no worse than middle of the pack.  That will seem like world beaters compared to the last couple of seasons.
